natepig I understand. Some people think that we are going over the top. But for me, and many others, he wasn't simply the invented of our favorite devices, rather tha man who inspired us to do things differently.
I wasn't a big fan of Steve earlier but after watching his Stanford Speech, I was truly amazed by the brilliance that was Steve Jobs.
I was personally not a fan, but all differences aside ... iSteve lifted the brand to heights that forced the industry to think a lil different and the result today are great cellphones. A lot of people will miss him greatly and other not, but nonetheless RIP Steve.
Not at all mate, I watched the Stanford Speech today and found it inspiring as well. I just find it strange that people elevate him to more than just what he was, a great talent in the design of computers, mp3 players, and high end phones. Don't get me wrong though I totally get what this guy was in work and privately as well, he was a first rate guy.
Do you mean the computing community or the community as a whole?
